**Steve**, Monday, February 11, 2013 at 10:18amyou want the sum of the 1st 12 terms of the sequence

1,3,5,7,...

Now just from experience, we know that the sum of the 1st n odd numbers is n^2, so there will be 144 people present.

Or, solving algebraically, we have an arithmetic sequence with

a=1, d=2

S12 = 12/2 (2*1 + 11*2)

= 6(2+22) = 6*24 = 144
